Former Captain Beats Old Team
James with 3 points to help Owen Sound defeat Barrie and win their 14th in a row.
It was a homecoming for former Colts Captain Cordell James.
The overage forward had a goal and 2 assists for his new team, the Owen Sound Attack, in a 6-2 victory over the Barrie Colts on Saturday night.
It was James' first game in Barrie since being traded to Owen Sound on January 9th.
The Attack opened up a 2-0 first period lead on goals by Petris Palmu and Maksim Sushko.
Roy Radke answered for the Colts early in the second period to make it 2-1 for Owen Sound.
But the Attack would not let up scoring two before the end of the period and two more in the third.
Sushko finished with two goals, Palmu had 3 points, and Michael McNiven had 20 saves in net for the Attack (30-13-1-0) who have now won 14 straight.
Giodano Finoro had the other Colts' (13-26-4-1) goal while Ruan Badenhorst stopped 33 shots.
Power plays saw Owen Sound go 3-for-4 while Barrie finished 1-for-4.
Same two teams go at it again at the Barrie Molson Centre this Thursday night.
